When I hold my current throwout bearing flat in my hand and grab it by the edges, it will slide or wobble back and forth probably a 1mm or more. It spins/rotates fine. I'm don't know much about clutch parts, but any other bearing I've ever used normally was pretty tight, so I'm wondering if this is a big deal. This is for a '77 cj7 with a T18 4 spd manual and the stock 258 I6 with aluminum bellhousing.

What you are describing to me sounds like the bearing is worn out. ti should not have any side play in it art all and should be fairly stiff to spin. Thank You
